Venetian Coin

| 0 min

I was in Venice last month, early in the morning, no other tourists around in a more remote part of town, with an hour to kill and a great deal more loose change than I knew what to do with.

Then “Egyptian Fantasy” started playing in my earbuds…

…and suddenly I knew what to do.
